Since 1982, Hodges & Thomas has handled personal injury claims throughout Southern California. Our firm's partners both have more than 30 years of experience advocating for personal injury victims and families with wrongful death claims. We are committed to applying our years of experience and legal skills to help you obtain a full financial recovery.
At Hodges & Thomas, we aggressively seek compensation for our clients from those responsible for causing their serious injuries. We consult industry-leading experts to help us prove fault, even when liability initially appears unclear. Our legal team also works with medical specialists to demonstrate the full extent of our clients' injuries as a result of someone else's fault. We focus on preparing every personal injury claim for a favorable trial verdict. This often prompts insurance companies to make large settlement offers to avoid litigation. We know that going to trial can be costly, both emotionally and financially. However, when an insurance company fails to offer just compensation, it may be necessary to you're your case to trial where we will continue to fight for you. For experienced representation, contact our law firm today to schedule a free initial consultation.
Offering a Variety of Legal Services in Personal Injury
Our firm's Southern California personal injury attorneys are committed to pursuing maximum compensation for accident victims and families with wrongful death claims related to a variety of personal injury areas, including:
Products liability - Defective products come in a variety of forms. A design defect occurs when the manufacturer or producer fails to design the product so that it is safe for its intended use. We have experience proving fault in highly complicated product liability claims.
Dog Bites We have experience pursuing litigation against irresponsible dog owners who fail to properly train or restrain their dogs. Our legal team advocates for clients who have suffered serious injuries and damages from being bitten by vicious dogs.
Auto accidents - We handle all types of motor vehicle accidents involving cars, motorcycles, trucks and bicycles. Every collision has the potential to cause temporary and permanent injuries, including brain injuries. We treat all of our clients with respect, while fighting to obtain maximum compensation.
Elder abuse - Senior citizens can become vulnerable to physical and mental abuse inflicted by professional caregivers in their home or at a care facility. Similarly, seniors are known to become victims of fraud and deceit. We take a strong stance against elder abuse and seek maximum compensation for our clients who have been injured physically, emotionally or financially.
